Camden's first official baseball practice was last night (yes, the 2.5 hour one), and Brian texted me this video of him pitching for the first time. And I swear to you, I was so darn proud that it brought tears to my eyes. I know it's silly. It's a 6 second video of one solitary pitch. But he was SO nervous. Remember he was so nervous that he wouldn't even give it a shot at tryouts? Well, he conquered those nerves, and they let him pitch at practice. And Brian said he was good. Thank heavens for an iPhone so I could see him even though I wasn't present.
And I post alot of smiles on this blog, but this particular smile is genuine and full of pride in himself. I wish you could have seen how excited he was when he got home (after nearly 3 hours at the ball park).
In more serious news, my dad is having an angiogram this afternoon, and I would appreciate your prayers. While I'm not anticipating anything other than good results, it's always a little bit nerve wracking to have a family member in surgery, especially when it involves something as serious as a heart.
